  A computational and mechanistic study of sodium-activated potassium channel function
  Research Group: BBSRC White Rose DTP
  Dr J D Lippiat, Dr A Kalli, Dr S Muench
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
The sodium-activated potassium channel KNa1.1 (KCNT1, Slack, Slo2.2) is found in neurons and its function is to conduct ions across neuronal membranes.
  A multi-disciplined approach to understand membrane protein dynamics
  Research Group: BBSRC White Rose DTP
  Dr S Muench, Dr C Pliotas
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Membrane proteins make up a significant part of the genome and are the target of ~30% of therapeutics and yet our structural and functional understanding often lags behind their soluble counterparts.
  Adapt or die - how do animals respond to changing environments?
  Research Group: School of Biology
  Dr E.J.. Duncan, Dr S M Sait
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
How do animals respond to new or changing environments? Why is it that some species can adapt or move, while others face extinction?.
  An integrated approach to the study of cellular interactions with amyloid
  Research Group: Astbury Centre for Structural Molecular Biology
  Dr E W Hewitt, Prof S E Radford
Applications accepted all year round
The formation of insoluble amyloid fibrils is associated with a spectrum of human disorders, the amyloidoses, which include Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, type 2 diabetes and dialysis related amyloidosis (DRA).
  Apoplastic signalling in the interaction between plant-parasitic nematodes and their host plants
  Research Group: Centre for Plant Sciences
  Prof P E Urwin
Application Deadline: 20 December 2018
Plant-parasitic nematodes are economically important crop pathogens that cause billions of dollars of crop losses to agriculture throughout the world.
  Biochemistry of cell-cell communication: revealing how signalling proteins move and interact in the extracellular space
  Research Group: School of Biomedical Sciences
  Dr R Richter
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Cell-cell communication is vital to all multicellular life and key in diseases such as cancer. In this PhD project, you will devise new strategies to design advanced biomaterials that guide cell-cell communication for tissue repair or to interfere with diseases such as cancer metastasis or chronic inflammation.
  Biohybrids for Solar Chemicals and Fuels: Whole-Cell Photocatalysis by Non-Photosynthetic Organisms
  Research Group: BBSRC White Rose DTP
  Prof L J C Jeuken, Dr K Critchley
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Solar energy is our most abundant energy source and has enormous potential as a clean and economical energy supply.
  Biological physics of cell trafficking: Immune cell homing at the blood vessel wall
  Research Group: School of Biomedical Sciences
  Dr R Richter
Application Deadline: 6 January 2019
Cell trafficking is vital to all multicellular life and key in diseases such as cancer. In this PhD project, you will devise new methods to study how immune cells that circulate in the blood stream find and bind to sites of inflammation and how cancer cells hijack the system to metastasize.
  Bionic protocells for enhanced performance of membrane proteins in biotechnology
  Research Group: BBSRC White Rose DTP
  Dr P Beales, Prof L J C Jeuken, Dr S Muench
Application Deadline: 7 January 2019
Protocells are seen as a stepping-stone to understanding the origin of life and are being developed to generate novel cell-like biotechnologies.
  Bloom and bust: how do plants know when to stop flowering?
  Research Group: Centre for Plant Sciences
  Dr T.A. Bennett
Application Deadline: 20 December 2018
We know a very large amount about the signals and mechanisms that lead to the initiation of flowering (the ‘floral transition’) in plants.
